Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli has confirmed that the studio will work to broaden the number of platforms supported by its super-powerful CryEngine technology, expanding to the Wii U and Kinect in the future.

'Crytek's support for Wii U is definitely going to happen,' Yerli told Develop. 'We aren't showing it but we are pretty much running it already.'

'We are expanding in many ways, and some of that is more announced than others,' Yerli added.

'Kinect is major driver for future platforms as well, so Kinect support is important. Having basic Kinect support in the CryEngine is one thing, but I'm talking about really supporting it deeply. CryEngine is going to have deep support.'

Yerli also hinted that the CryEngine would support mobile platforms and tablets, but wouldn't confirm anything beyond the fact that Crytek is investigating these possibilities.

Crytek's CryEngine was most recently used in Crysis 2, which appeared on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC not too long ago.
